"Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten."
((except for maybe Trogdor))
-G. K. Chesterton (1874-1936)
(found in the beginning pages of Coraline by Neil Gaiman, 2002, 1st edition. [not the image, just the quote. Minus the Trogdor bit too, of course].)
